Senator Warne's Unusual Ac
tivity in The Negro's Humiliation.
That the Junior Senator from
ifcis state is subservient to the
aiictatioHSof the Roosevelt Admin
tratiort ip. evident from the role
.ie has assumed in the Senate's
Brownsville investigation. That
ee is acting contrary to his better
judgement, vc "believe is evident
from a study of his past career.
But the stand he has takon brooks
to apology. He has placed his
ircat personality against his
ust friend and most loyal suppor
:r, the Nero.
Years ago, how the Negroes of
is Coiritnowcatth adored him!
Vith streaming eyes, our Old Sol
iier Uoys would hail hiuapproach
Did they think then that he, their
itro, would be the principal in
urnment uied io stultify the no
vie career of their valorous dusky
ns? Yet cruel fate has ordain
tO that he, the Negro's greatest
Viol, should smite him the sever-
t 1 low. We look l'cr stabs and
',;;cks and curses and in justices
fjom the Tiilmans, Carmacks,
Tiraveses and Dixons, that majes
tic array of anarchistic firebrands
-.bat know not shame. When they
:rikc, wc are nerved to receive
:bcir vicious blows. But when
those whom we have loved and
:rnsted so absolutely smite us as
Major Warner, the Junior Sena
Xr front this State persists indo
ing, onr strength deserts us, and
:n despair we are forced to artic
ulate, And Thou, to, Warner."
Is President Roosevelt so great
that he is incapable ol commie
sin;; an error?
I- the Negro o insignificant
.hat a wrong, however fiendish
;i great it nuy be, is inflicted up.
:n him needs no redress?
In other word, can n Great and
Cultured White man do anything
to a Negro that wouH contrary
to the laws of American Ethics?
Some strange conditions have
arisen as result of this Browns
ville affair. Our race has been
to a grave injustice. In our weak
ness we have asked th&t justice
be done. Our old men have plead
for fair play. Our mothers have
prayed that this stigma be erased
from the brow of their suff-rinK
sons. Our young men, manlully
and courageously, demand that a
square deal be given.
Holland, years ago, wher threat
ened by a merciless foe, loost-d
her dykes and surrendered to the
sea, rather than bow the knee to
despotism. As a result of her
absolute surrender to fate, she
liberated hertelf. Young Ncgroe
will refuse tc longer be beguiled
by t ie duplicities of such men as
Senator Warner, who lias risen
to lame and affluence by stepping
upon the shoulders of our fathers.
Fifty tnousand Negro votes were
woven into the fabric from which
the -'Mysterious Stranger" made
the senatorial toga that envelopes
the ungrateful heart of the Junior
Senator of Missouri.
In one thing we may expect the
senators from Missouri to be to
gcther on this year voting to
brand Negio soldiers as crimi
nals, outlaws and traitors, with
out evidence to sustain the alie
The Brow nsville In'sstice.
The vot of 11 to' 2 by which
the Senate Committee on Military
Affair.- declared that the soldiers
of the Twentfith lnfantry"thot
up" the town of Brownsville on
that August night of 1906 does
not dispose of that case The
Senate is still to be heard- from.
Senator F orker has led the fight,
in favor of the discharged soldiers
and on the divisions on some as
pects of the cuse he has stood
pratically nlone. Nobody doubts
that the Senile will sustain the.
position taken by the committer
But the vote there is not likely to
be so onesided ns it has been in
the committee. Morover, in the
discussion in the Senate the coun
try will bear wha' is said on both
But neither the vote in the
committee nor in the Senate will
alter the fact that the discharge
of a whole battalion for the of
fcuiies of a .'tw members of it, if
any of the members did commit
the offenses charged agaisnt them
was unjust. Morover, at the
time of the discharge then had
virtually been no hearing of the
case from the side of the soldiers.
Not even the most pronounced of
the enemies of the soldi rs have
ever intimated that all of them,
participated in the disturbance.
The theory of the law that it is
better that the ten guilty persons
escape than that one innocent
persons shall suffer is here'roade
to read that ten innocent persons
.-iiall suffer in order that the one
guiity'peron shall not escape.
1 The fact that the discharged
soldiers were Negroes is ti de
tail. which will' not be considered
here. There is no double stand-'
ar'dlti morals! Equity carries
no color line Many of the 150
embers of the dicharged .bat
talion had served severd terms in
the army. t Some of them would
soo have been utile to retite 6n h
erce j.e isicn. The c mdm t. f the
battalion bad been good. Yet virt i '
a;ly with out a bearing all its mem
her were expelled from the arm'
under a charge of dishonor. All
of tlu-tn urn forever barred from
getting anv positiou of any sort in
the service of the government.
After an honorable military rec
ord extending, in the case sorr.e ol
the n, over fiften or twenty ycf
all arc thrown out on the world
branded as outlaws Whatever
the president or the Senate may
say about this conduct it -will te
very hard to make the American
people beleive that this is justice.

Forakcr's bill to restore to tha
tay roll of the army such of the
negro soldiers of the Twentv-tifth
infantry a.t shown to have had no
part in the Brownsville outiage is
the lastrallv in a fight that has

The bill will not pas. Dem

is little sympathy uny where for

dismissed without honor irom the

acy of silence merited a heavier
punishment than they have re
If in the sui's recently brought

better if he had attacked the vul

dismissal of the men was heady,

been kept in ihe service for the
